A Short Description Crime and Culture is a specific targeted research project supported within the Sixth Framework Programme of the European Commission and co-ordinated at Konstanz University, Germany. It brings together 35 researchers across ten institutions in eight European countries. The research project aims to develop means to optimise corruption prevention in the EU. The urgency of such a project is reflected in the fact that corruption holds the potential to retard seriously the process of the Community s enlargement and integration, even to the extent of threatening the very core of its concept of social order. The prevention policies that have been developed by the EU and implemented so far within individual member countries have in general been characterised by legislative, administrative and police force measures. These are based on a definition of corruption prevention developed in political and administrative institutions that rely on a top-down procedure for its implementation. The research project purports to conduct not an inquiry into the nature of corruption as such , but rather into the perceptions of corruption held by political and administrative decision-makers in specific regions and cultures, those held by actors representing various institutions and authorities, and above all by the citizens and the media in European societies. The project proceeds from the assumption that the considerably varying perceptions of corruption, determined as they are by cultural dispositions , have significant influence on a country s respective awareness of the problem and thereby on the success of any preventative measures. For this reason, the project investigates the fit between institutionalised prevention policies and how these are perceived in daily practice , as well as how EU-candidate and member countries as a result handle the issue of corruption. In a final step, the research project intends to make specific recommendations for readjusting this fit in the frame of an interactive scholars-experts conference in Brussels. The members of the project consortium are: University of Konstanz (Germany, co-ordinator), University of Tübingen (Germany), Police University (Federal German State of Baden-Württemberg, affiliated), Centre for Liberal Strategies (Sofia, Bulgaria), Research Institute for Quality of Life-Romanian Academy (Bucharest, Romania), Galatasaray University (Istanbul, Turkey), University of Zagreb (Croatia), National School of Public Administration and Local Government (Athens, Greece), Panteion University (Athens, Greece), South East European Studies at Oxford (United Kingdom), Center for Research and Policy Making (FYR Macedonia, affiliated).</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2007</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:title>Crime and Culture - Breaking New Ground in Corruption Research</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Tänzler, Dirk</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2011-03-25T09:35:11Z</dcterms:available> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Maras, Konstadinos</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Tänzler, Dirk</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Maras, Konstadinos</dc:creator> <dc:format>application/pdf</dc:format> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
